New Authentic Spanish Fiction!

 

¿Cómo es el cocodrilo?

Teresa Novoa
¿Cómo es el cocodrilo?

(What Is a Crocodile Like?) GL K-2

 A giant crocodile comes out of a river and meets a tiny mouse, a big elephant, a tall giraffe, a short armadillo, a wrinkly frog, and many other animals. The simple texts are accompanied by colorful illustrations that open the door to the reader’s interpretation. Based on the special characteristics of each animal, concepts of texture and size are presented so that children identify and learn the meaning of each one.

 

El viaje del vikingo soñador

 

The viking didn’t have

very many possessions;

   he never wanted to be tied

to life in the village

with its sleepy firs

and its immense bonfires.

Ana Merino
El viaje del vikingo soñador 

(The Journey of the Dreaming Viking)
GL 2-5

This is a modern epic poem that takes us on a surprising journey toward the place where answers live, where true love hides.

Pateando lunas

Roy Berocay
Pateando lunas
(Kicking Moons)
  
GL 3-6

Mayte is a little girl who likes to play soccer and climb trees, but her parents don’t agree with her playing “boys’ games.” This book is an invitation to reflect about identity and gender equality. The construction of the character, the story, the tone, and the agile rhythm of this book offer a rebellious look at the prejudices of adults, which will urge boys and girls to identify with the way Mayte feels and thinks.

 

Bolita 

Antonio M. B. Brozon
Bolita
(Bolita) GL K-3

 The day that Bolita is born, everyone in the zoo is surprised by her weight. Mama Giraffe is happy with her baby, but Bolita starts to feel sad when she sees that everyone is laughing at her. Poncho, the giraffe-keeper’s son, has an idea: to dress Bolita up as an elephant! A story that discusses the value of mutual respect despite physical appearances. More than 50,000 copies sold.

 

Mis 130 apellidos

Irene Vasco
Mis 130 apellidos
(My 130 Last Names)
GL 3-5

Emilio knows several things: that he is seven years old, that he lives in a country that appears on the map where it says “South America,” that he is Jewish, and that his last name is pronounced “Moscovici.” But soon, several of his Israeli relatives from around the world will come to his house to celebrate and he will discover that he has 130 last names. An excellent work for addressing aspects of identity, family history, and the origins of our names.

       

¿De qué color es la cebra?

Teresa Novoa
¿De qué color es la cebra?
(What Color Is a Zebra)  GL K-2

The zebra has a serious doubt: she wants to know what color she is, so she compares herself with other animals. Is she red like a ladybug? Yellow like a lion? Green like a frog? But the zebra isn’t red, or yellow, or green, or blue, or orange, or purple, or brown. What color could she be? Through the zebra’s question and the fun illustrations, children will identify the names of colors as they recognize the colors of various animals.
